Actually Bella is doing very well!  She walks in a very unique way and can't co-ordinate her sight and pecking very well- but she can feed very well from a container or if there's no need to be very accurate!   :)

Steve made a very accessible and safe route up to the bar in their house, but so far she hasn't gone up.  He also put a low bar up, but she's sleeping in her makeshift box on the floor, which is fine, but I feel sorry for the two off them seperated all night! I think I'll lift her up tonightand see what happens? What do you think?

I haven't seen Bella drinking at all, but she refuses when I try to coax her, and she's spending a few hours everyday along with Broody and the ducks on the river bank, so I suppose she must be drinking.  She does look amazingly well anyway! 

Thanks for your kind thoughts folks.  When my new camera charger arrives, I'll take a pic of her  :D
